what everyone expected him to do two weeks ago, bring up mitt romney's 47% comments. that secret video has been romney's biggest gaffe and he spent the week since trying to show he cares about all americans including the poor and working past. this past saturday congressman paul ryan attempted to further that message making a stop at a soup kitchen in ohio, offering to help clean dishes. while ryan logged in a total of 15 minutes at the kitchen he did manage to wash some pans and made sure to note his own had history on kp. >> you know i've [ inaudible ] washing dishes. you get callouss on your fingers it's so hot. >> the photo opt looked like campaign gold to everyone but the people who actually work at the soup kitchen. the president of the charity brine antall told "the washington post" yesterday, quote, they showed up there and they did not have permission. they got one of the volunteers to open up the doors. perhaps more importantly, the dining hall was empty and reportedly everything had been cleaned earlier that day. said antall the photo op they did not was no the accurate. he
three hours away from what could be the biggest night of the campaign. obama/romney, round two. this debate is a town hall foremate. the two candidates will answer questions from undecided voters. one question everyone is asking, will president obama bring the heat tonight? will he challenge mitt romney's claims on taxes, on abortion, on jobs? late this afternoon sources told nbc news the president does, indeed, plan to hold moderate mitt accountable for the positions governor romney took for the last year. before leaving for new york this morning, he seemed relaxed. >> how are you feeling about tonight? >> i feel fabulous. look at this beautiful day. >> what are you going to say? >> gorgeous. hope you enjoy the day. >> are you aware michelle voted for you yesterday? >> thank goodness. >> for governor romney, the question is, can the candidate, known for being out of touch, connect with people in the town hall setting? how will he handle a tougher president obama? they are big challenges for both. the tension is high. the stakes are even higher. joining us from hofstra universi

already voted. but the numbers are amazing. president obama leads mitt romney by 28 points among early voters. it should be noted that the romney campaign has been complaining about it and trying to discredit it. today mitt romney's political director released a memo attacking the methodology calling this flawed and untrue. nobody complains about the methodology when they are ahead. the romney folks have only recently stopped complaining about the methodology of all of the polling being done. their complaining stopped when romney started doing better in the polls a couple weeks ago. in terms of the swing states, this is how things look. president obama in pennsylvania with a 4-point lead. the president down three points in just the span of a couple weeks. in ohio president obama up by 5 points in a poll released over the weekend. in florida it's mitt romney up by 1 point in north carolina. in virginia romney by 1 point. in iowa the latest poll shows the race to be tied. a new "usa today" gallup poll of the swing states shows mitt romney with an overall 4-point lead in the swing states
that carries either president obama or mitt romney to victory on november the 6th. the expectations are very different for round two, and the stakes could not be higher. the consensus is clear, the president must get his mojo back after a weak first debate that left democrats demoralized and his lead eroding in both national polls and battleground states. for romney another debate win could give him the momentum to break the president's hold on swing states like ohio and wisconsin and give him the keys to the white house. and that is why with 21 days to go, the president must use this debate to shatter the mythical mitt romney who is chas currenty entranced the voters. case in point, romney's alleged plan to create 12 million jobs through those proven pro-growth policies. guess what? they're not proven at all, none of it is. in fact, "the washington post" fact checker today gives the most essential claim of romney's campaign four pinocchios. its equivalent of a pants on fire lie. calling even the most reliable of the numbers highly conditional. fact checker glen kessler writes simply, this i

. will president barack obama show some fire and passion? and is governor mitt romney ready to be challenged? >>> also, secretary of state hillary clinton talks to cnn about the deadly attack on benghazi saying and i'm quoting her now "i take responsibility." and in a rare interview about her family, the first lady talks about life in the white house and her husband's performance in the first debate. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> with only 21 days to go until the presidential election, we're counting down to debate night in america. both candidates are taking tonight very, very seriously. air force one arrived in new york just a few hours ago. president obama has spent the past few days in virginia. he's been concentrating on debate preparations. mitt romney flew in from massachusetts where he's been rehearsing. everything could hinge on the candidates' performance in tonight's debate town hall tile moderated by cnn's own candy crowley. our predebate coverage begins right now with cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta who's been following the romney campai
poll shows mitt romney is making up ground in key swing states and he owes a lot of that to his rising popularity among women. >> mitt romney now leads president obama with five points. tied 48 to 48. he is still ahead with men, though. so the movement among women has put this race on the bubble. and today, ann romney who is leading the effort to get women to vote republican was in the battleground state of pennsylvania. >> find an independent that voted for barack obama last time or a democrat that voted for barack obama last time. and say how have the last four years been? you want the same thing. go ahead. you want a change for a better prosperous future? vote for mitt romney. >> jennifer: paul ryan voted for the lilly ledbetter act. romney has always pledged to defund planned parenthood, would appoint supreme court justices who would overturn rowee v. wade. and the president has to call this out. republicans are arguing from freedom from regulation, unless of course you are a woman. don't worry your pretty little heads about it gals. even with all of this i
romney. now the race is simply too close to call. let's go to the national numbers first. the president trails the former massachusetts governor by two points in the latest gallup tracking poll. mr. obama leads romney by a single point in the politico gwu poll and perhaps giving him solace, likely voters in the absence news "washington post" poll give mr. obama a three-point edge over governor romney. turning to 12 swing states that will almost certainly decide the election the aggregateed united states today gallup poll has the president trailing mitt romney 46-50%. and astonishing after all the talk last summer of a gender gap women voters in those states split their preferences with 48% for each candidate. but the likely poll of has a tie and the public polling shows the president trailing romney by two points in north carolina. president obama prepared for tomorrow's debate in williamsburg. he seemed confident when requested about it. >> how are things going. >> it is going great. >> eliot: of course he said the same thing before the first debate. while the president's poll numbers
is on to the showdown at hofstra. mitt romney's path may be getting traction. tonight's debate may be the most critical moment for president obama. just hours from now, the president and governor will face off for round two, a town hall meeting before an audience of uncommitted voters at new york's hofstra university. the president departs virginia for the big apple this hour. tonight is high stakes for the incumbent amplified by reports that states like ohio and pennsylvania could be ripe for a romney ticket. >> they hear all the gloom and doom talk, they hear about how poorly the president did in the first debate. and i think even the president will admit he did poorly in the first debate. but to hear how the sky is falling when that's what you you heard throughout the fall of 2007, that he was terrible at debates, is history going to repeat itself again tonight? ? i thi >> i think you'll see a strong debate performance from the president. he'll be strong, passionate, energetic. >> no r for romney, the goal is repeat performance convincing voters he's likeable and the one for the next four years. >>
that this voting group could peel away and mitt romney can get it. here's what we saw after the first debate. mitt romney's favorable rating went up with suburban women. his handling of the economy went up with suburban women. the only thing that didn't move enough was the ballot test. i think that's what you'll hear a lot tonight. you'll hear mitt romney trying to target these folks. not talking about social issues. you're going to hear the president, i think, try to bring this up in a way, because they believe this is their trump card into colorado, their trump card into virginia, their trump card in some of these suburban areas. you're right, they didn't bring it up a lot, although joe biden did. it's the one opening they thought biden exposed against paul ryan late in that debate. >> yeah, that was sort of -- it was done by his pushiness, if you will. biden kept pushing, pushing, until finally paul ryan broke and said what he really believed. a theocratic argument f you believe it morally you have to enforce it. which offends those in the middle and the left. howard, you heard something about
candidate himself, howard dean and tennessee republican house member and romney surrogate marcia blackburn. i want to ask you what is going on here. is hillary trying to take the fall for barack obama? i don't understand the dynamic here. >> this is five weeks, we have been five weeks. we don't have the answers. we lost the life of one of our ambassadors. and that is one of the good reasons for our intelligence committee and our government reform. holding hearings and starting to get to the bottom of this and figure out who knew what and when. the intelligence sources, that is the part that baffles me. i have to ask you. you look at this thing. hillary takes the blame. okay fine. >> but basically, my question is, who invented the cook and bull story that susan rice and others tried to sell that this was all because of a youtube video. that story has never been denied and it could have been -- where did that come from? >> this is pretty disgraceful. five weeks after 9/11 we weren't wondering why george bush wasn't taking responsibility for it. we supported the president. i think you should
campaign staffer stephanie as he blamed governor romney and congressman ryan for what he called their exploitation of the tragedy. >> i think we ought to follow the lead of the investor's family and allow this investation to run and get to the bottoof it and make the adjustments necessary. >> wait a minute. speaker david, wait a minute. >> this is the first u.s. invest killed since 1979. susan wght came on this show and five others gave the american people a story that turned out not to be true and you say we shouldn't discuss this, we should wait for the investigation to be completed? that is what you just said. >> calm down, that is not wt i am saying. >> you said we should follow the lead. >> i am happy to discuss it with you, and i do think it worthy of discussion. that is differt from the manner governor romney has conducted himself. he was critized by people from right to lef republican establishment and democratic establishment. >> are talkg about what he said the day after the attacks. >> at the beginning of this issue, he was trying to exploit it. lou: a cover-up on th

between americans who say yes to the achievements of president obama and those backing romney is that fine, that delicate. recent polling shows the difference in popular backing for what obama has done, the saving of the auto industry, the rescue of the u.s. economy itself, the killing of bin laden, health care for working americans, against what romney is offering is roughly zero. as i said, it's that close. so tonight we look at how obama can regain the lead. is it with a populist message, a challenge to romney's politics, of, by, and for the wealthy? is it a step by step dismembering of romney's tax plan? or a tough, positive declaration of what he has managed to do by president? whatever strategy the president chooses, wherever he places the sharp focus of his message, his time, his energy, his money, it's time for the man in the white house to buy his ticket and take his chances. he's got three weeks to make it work. joining me is new york magazine's john heilemann who has a big article in this week's edition and former pennsylvania governor ed rendell. first, two new national polls.
